Campaign Planning & Strategy Workshop (daytime session)

Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at 04:00 PM · 19 rsvps
by Zoom videocall

Learn how to choose an issue that will mobilize mothers and how to plan a winning campaign. Strategy involves deciding what you want, figuring out who can give it to you, then figuring out how to get them to give it to you. A key piece of the planning is power analysis -- understanding the power of the decision maker(s) and what power you have to influence their decision.  

Vanessa Rule, cofounder of Mothers Out Front, and Keshia Sexton, deputy director of organizing, will lead this workshop for members of the MA Leadership Team and other leaders.  Attendance is first come-first serve with a limit of 25 people, so sign up now!

2050 Roadmap Virtual Rally

Wednesday, July 15, 2020 at 10:00 AM · 61 rsvps

Join Elders Climate Action, Mothers Out Front, and other allies for a 

Virtual Rally to support the 2050 Roadmap bill (H.3983) and Environmental Justice (H.4264)

Wednesday, July 15, 10:00 a.m.

Ask your State Representative to attend and/or speak at the rally! See more about the Mothers Out Front calls to Reps this week here.

The 2050 Roadmap bill is one of the big climate bills that has a good chance of passing. Many of our priorities would be enacted if this bill were law because it is people-centered, meaning that the provisions value the health and livelihoods of the residents of the Commonwealth not the profits of the fossil-fuel industry. The science-based analysis that is mandated by the bill would guide the policies that will move us swiftly to a clean and healthy future.

The Environmental Justice bill will codify into law guidelines that the current Governor has not abided by, endangering the lives and health of environmental justice communities across the Commonwealth.

RSVP below. For security reasons, you will get an email from us asking you to "register" for the Zoom. Then you'll be sent a Zoom link from our friends at Elders Climate Action. Please bear with us on this multi-step process. We want to keep the rally safe and smooth.

Zoom

Edith Allison from Amherst Mothers Out Front will facilitate an open conversation for grandparents and other elders. Who's more worried about COVID-19, you or your adult children or friends? Are you feeling grateful to have grandchildren nearby and huggable, or frustrated by keeping 6 feet from your dear ones? Are you dealing with loneliness, fear or grief? This is an informal space for conversation, not a therapeutic setting, but an opportunity to share how we're coping and finding hope and other nuggets on our minds....

Zoom link will be sent in a response to your RSVP.
